Your Raleigh Dentist In Cary NC
Dr. Matthew Bostian was born and raised in New Bern, NC and attended dental school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a strong believer in co-diagnosis, or getting the patient involved in the treatment planning process by educating them about their dental health. He values trust and meaningful relationships, and believes they are essential to providing the best dental care possible. Whether it’s as simple as a tooth whitening, or complex as a complete smile “makeover”, Dr. Bostian’s goal as a dentist is to help patients achieve the highest level of dental health.
Before joining the Cary Family Dental team, Dr. Bostian trained at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in NYC, where he treated United States veterans with complex dental needs. There he gained extensive experience working with anxious and phobic patients, and received advanced training in surgery, implantology, and comprehensive dental care. He continues to provides high-quality, evidence-based care for his patients at Cary Family Dental and has completed hundreds of hours of advanced education on implants, occlusion, and esthetics at the highly renowned Pankey Institute.
Dr. Bostian is passionate about giving back. Before starting his career in dentistry, he worked as a high school science teacher with Teach For America and while in dental school, spent two years directing a free, student-led dental clinic for under served communities. Dr. Bostian is a friendly Raleigh dentist, serving the people of Cary, Raleigh, Apex and the surrounding areas, but he is best known for creating a compassionate, patient-focused, and non-judgmental atmosphere for everyone, regardless of their background or dental history. When he’s not practicing dentistry, he likes to spend time biking, running trails, or backpacking with his wife, Demi.
